Current “Scandal” and former “Felicity” star Scott Foley is firming up a very TV-friendly cast for his directorial debut “Ward’s Wife,” including Donald Faison, Nicollette Sheridan and Patrick Wilson.
Deadline reports “Scrubs” star Faison will play the main character, Ward, who decides to kill his verbally abusive spouse (played by Foley’s real life wife Marika Dominczyk).
Sheridan’s role is unspecified but will mark her first major acting gig since bringing a wrongful termination suit against ABC following her exit from “Desperate Housewives.”
Wilson, who is Foley’s real life brother-in-law (he’s married to Dominczyk’s sister, Dagmara), will produce the film with Foley in addition to taking on an acting role.
Familiar TV faces James Carpinello (“The Mob Doctor”), Amy Acker (“Angel”) and Greg Grunberg (“Heroes”) are also in the cast.
